A story about the National Education Association's UniServ directors in the Oct. 8 issue of Education Week may have implied that Pennsylvania teachers' dues support these staff members' work on political campaigns. Dues support their lobbying activities, while separate political-action funds pay for UniServ members' political work.

A story in the Oct. 1 issue about a group of New York City parents that wanted to pay a teacher's salary may have left the impression that the group was an affiliate of the National Congress of Parents and Teachers. Parent associations in the city's schools go by a variety of names, but none is affiliated with the National PTA.
